Lake Garda is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday, and each of our elegant, stylish resorts has been selected to offer the very best that the lake has to offer.
Named for the hillside terraces of citrus groves that surround it, Limone is a bustling resort on Garda's western shore. Here, cobbled streets lead down to the lake and the lively nightlife offers a delightful counterpoint to relaxed, sunny days.
Malcesine's pretty labyrinth of narrow lanes and squares nestles on Lake Garda's north-eastern shore beneath green-sloped Mount Baldo. A cable car runs from the town to the summit, and there's also a 13th-century castle to explore.

At the northernmost tip of the Lake, Riva is on of Garda's most popular resorts. It's a town of elegant, pastel-painted buildings, medieval architecture and lakeside piazzas, which also a boasts some excellent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
A little way east of Riva, Torbole is a vibrant resort with a lively cafe culture and a lovely lakefront promenade.
